Disaster Assistance Team

The DAT decided to work toward the following goals in 2018:

Develop a plan to check on members during/following a disaster.

Assist the properties committee in helping to make our church facilities safe.

Partner with Windemere Union UCC in helping bring Light to Puerto Rico.


Recently, Nancy Rosato a member of Windemere Union UCC and of Puerto Rican heritage shared an inspirational message during a mission moment.  Her motivational message energized the congregation to get "on board" with the solar light bulb project we have titled "Light Up Puerto Rico".  Along with our prayers our congregation sent 170 solar light bulbs to Puerto Rico.  They will be delivered personally in early April to communities that are still without power.

          The disaster assistance team is one of our newer missions.  After learning from experts about some of the aspects of disaster work the group committed to preparing 15 clean up buckets.  The buckets will replenish the supply that was exhausted during last summer's disasters.  Funds for the items included in each bucket were raised from member's donations; as well as grant funds from the Florida Conferce UCC and the National Office UCC. The buckets will be stored in central Florida for use when needed.

                Please contact Connie Waidmann for more information .
